About Me


finding out more


Currently working on local food issues at the Columbia Farmers Markets and with small, sustainable farmers in the Mid-Missouri region. I also work on a few farms in the area, a goat dairy, a permaculture farm and an organic farm focusing on fermenting sauerkraut. I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I studied environmental heath, social change and photography. Involved in activism with the environment, anti-war, and all human rights. I enjoy not having obligations and reading outside.


live outside of normalcy, and be kind
